MARYAM LUQMAN TALIB: “My brother, who was shot twice in the leg and made to walk, fainted three times on the way to helicopter”

Maryam Luqman Talib — Australian of Sri Lankan origin, student of pharmacy
(This face-to-face interview was conducted in Istanbul, Turkey, on 4 June 2010)

“The spirit on the Mavi Marmara was just beautiful. We had people that we could not communicate with, but our hearts could communicate. There was so much unity, so much love. There was just peace.”

“I really felt that people who are trying within their capacity, who are trying to use the resources which God gave them to fight for the truth, will never feel any anxiety or worry.”

“The Israelis tried to detain us, tried to put fear in our hearts, but it was only their hearts that felt this fear. Even though we were under siege, even though we were all captives, with courage, many of our brothers and sisters were mocking them and resisting. That courage and tranquillity were from God.”
